I’ll take Jesus over a bookie anyday

Friday the 4th of July, I went golfing with my father-in-law and Alistair the youth intern at our church.  It was an extremely hot day and we got held up about an hour or so so it took us a little over 5 hours for 18 holes.  LeAnn and my mother-in-law picked us up and we went and got a cold drink and an ice cream cone.  We decided to go to the grocery and pick up something for dinner before heading out for the fireworks.  My father-in-law wanted to go home and shower but I suggested that we just stop since it was on the way.  Walking back out to the car, I looked across the parking lot and who do I see but my oldest brother. I have seen him once in the last 7 years and here he was vacationing the same place we were.  It was cool to be able to introduce him to my in-laws and Alistair. The coolest part though was I think that God was showing me just how big He is and also that all things are in His control.  There are over 6 Billion people in the world. There are over 300 Million people in the United States of America. There are over 9 Million people in North Carolina.  Guess whose car we were parked next to in the parking lot?  That is right, my brother…. Anyone good at making odd’s or statistics?
